After playing the clip of Trump, Ali Velshi asked his co-host, “why is he thinking about Ali?”

"We will get this done," Trump claimed in May 2017.
“We'll start a process which hopefully will lead to peace,” Trump said. “Over the course of my lifetime, I've always heard that perhaps the toughest deal to make is the deal between the Israelis and the Palestinians. Let's see if we can prove them wrong, okay?”
